Help Us Meet the Challenge!

course-15-latino-hispanicHispanic/Latino cancer survivors have unique physical, emotional and practical needs. Together with the LIVESTRONG Foundation, we are offering a no-cost, five-part video series that awards nurses 1.0 contact hours: Advancing Care: Cancer in Hispanic/Latino Populations. This powerful, informative program is appropriate for nurses in ALL fields of practice.

We have been challenged by the CDC to have 3,500 nurses or other health professionals watch these important videos before the course expires in August 2014. Will you please help us spread the word and educate every nurse to provide better patient care to the Hispanic/Latino population? Thank you!

 
Better Survivorship Care for Patients: The Nurse's Role

canstockphoto15389644Nearly 14 million Americans are now living with and beyond a diagnosis of cancer. Major advances in cancer detection and treatment have resulted in longer survival. However, physical, financial, and emotional hardships often persist after diagnosis and treatment.

Most nurses are not well versed on the wide spectrum of issues cancer survivors face. To address this knowledge gap, NOEP offers Survivorship Care: Increasing Your Patients' Quality of Life. As part of the no-cost course, nurses will learn about the Survivorship Care Plan, a record that all patients should receive detailing their cancer history and plan for follow-up care, as recommended by the Institute of Medicine.

Regardless of the area of specialty, nurses are likely to see a cancer survivor at some point during their nursing career. Anticipating the physical, emotional, and practical concerns of this population can assist the nurse in providing the best care possible.


 
Personal Stories from Care Team and Patients

Continuing Education for Nurses AYA Video

During National Young Adult Cancer Awareness Week (April 7-13), view this short, award-winning video series and share with colleagues. Nurses, no matter the field of practice, can impact cancer in young adults. 

The education was recognized by the Young Adult Alliance for advancing the National Cancer Institute's Progress Review Group Recommendations to, in turn, advance the field of adolescent and young adult (AYA) oncology.

One course reviewer said, "I would recommend this continuing education for any healthcare provider. It doesn't matter what field you are in. It is insightful and the personal journeys that the survivors share will open your eyes to their very special emotional needs." We'd love to get YOUR feedback, too!
